Tennessee Titans interested in supplemental draft prospect?

Why the Titans might make some noise July 9th.

The Tennessee Titans haven't made a supplemental draft bid in as long as I can remember, but this year with the advantage of having the second priority (since this is sort of build like a waiver wire transfer) they are at least considering it.

According to reports, Tennessee was at the West Georgia Pro Day where two players were working out:

Dalvon Stuckey and Darrius Caldwell were the player mentioned, both defensive players.

As far as I can tell, both Stuckey and Cladwell were scheduled to attend Arizona State University, and either grades or other issues prevented them from making that happen. Here is a quick look at both players:

Dalvon Stuckey

-Height 6'3"

-Weight 300 lb.

-Schools interested in signing him after JUCO: Arizona State, Louisville, Auburn

-Where he fits: This is a guy whose highlight reel was only one minute long because in every play he was triple teamed. He played nose/1-tech and was a commanding force against the run. Now, having said that he was obviously playing worse talent and it isn't like teams like Ohio State or Oregon were pounding down his door.

I think he could be an interesting late round flier sort of player who matures behind Sammie Hill this year and then gets a chance next year at a weak position.

Darrius Caldwell

-Height 6'6"

-Weight 240 lb.

-Schools interested in signing him after JUCO: Arizona State, South Carolina, Illinois

-Where he fits: Like Stuckey, Cladwell plays at a weak position for the Tennessee Titans right now. The best word to describe his highlight reel is disruptive. He constantly got into passing lanes and got his hands up often tipping and sometimes intercepting passes.

He looked very good, but if he didn't that would be a huge red flag. 6'6" guys with his sort of athleticism don't grow on trees and it wouldn't surprise me to hear that someone spends a seventh on him based off of pure upside alone. While I think Stuckey is an intriguing fit on the Titans because of what he could be at a shallow position, you could make the argument that Caldwell would have been drafted in the same range as Deiontrez Mount because that was the area of the draft where upside was trumping what productivity was left on the board.

Should the Titans bring in either of these guys, probably not, but both do have a place on this team as a reserve/backup with upside.
